Monte – good on you for what you do and a definite tip of the tam-o-shanter to you for being one of the few tapers – a genuine producer as well as a consumer – to step through these doors. I just kind of take issue with talk of ‘disrespecting the Core Spirit of the Forum’ because I just wonder what that Core Spirit is exactly.

We’ve been around and around this issue endlessly, but basically this a public forum and anyone can come here and post just about anything, and anything that gets posted is public domain and open to being praised, mocked, agreed with, argued about or more than likely simply ignored. Open door means you have to be prepared for those you consider idiots to walk in along with those you consider to be worthy of attention.

None of us can expect to be accorded special treatment no matter how much effort we put in, because you really can’t do anything about who’s going to read your post and how they're going to respond to it - and nor should you. There’s no point in getting annoyed about it. Those who want to engage with you on your own terms will be obvious to you, the others you can safely ignore.

By the way, I came across one of your recordings on a music blog the other day and wondered if you knew about it.

I take issue with that...I am not gonna let Healy just fade away after insulting my core issue. If my cooling rods wore thru their graphite circumfri (like that one?), I figure I can build ten more such structures to further fuel this place that has taken over, or perhaps, replaced the pathetic life I once had...

I remain half-heartedly commited to building the Forum of my dreams via collective KubyeYah posting of each and every Forumite I can coerce, beg, or otherwise bend to my will...and if you still want to chauffeur me around in Wales, it would be grand. I'll even save you a place in the cabinet, or whatever you calls it--like the "exchequer" one I always loved!

Circumfri?? You are really pushing your luck with that one you bearded ancient.

And don't yOu think all this talk of rods and bending to your will is just a teensy bit homoerotic?

Scandalous, I say. Scandalous.

Rob, Is a Tam-O-Shanter not too floppy to be tipped?

Monte, Thanks and keep up the good posts!
